    Question Use(s) of Haki

    What's haki for, besides making weaker people faint? It's safe to say it has other uses: what could they be? Will it be something every strong fighter will have from now on?
    You can come up with any idea that crosses your mind though. No need for facts, evidences and such things :be imaginative!!!

    As a start: incapacitating a df user for a short time? Would come in handy against a logia
    Vooooooooooiiiii!

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    logia maybe, paramecians don't seem to be affected. or all that matters is strength. in that case fights like the one to get out of the auction house wouldn't be necessary anymore.
    --> more real fight and faster story progress? or perhaps scaring sea kings away ^^

    Clearing weaklings away. Like rankless marines and pirate underlings. To avoid what happened in Enies Lobby where they had to go through all those weak marines.

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    When wb and shanks almost fought or almost fought, there was thunder in the sky coming behind the both of them and clashing. This might be due to haki. Maybe the one with the strongest spirit can take the upper hand in a "monster fight" like this. Maybe at a certain level, it becomes harder to win a fight (like at yonkou level), and haki is the way to do it.

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    Maybe Haki was discovered by Gol D Roger, and he taught his crew how to use it... until now, only guys who were on his ship used it... (Shanks, reylegh) i dont think WB used it against Shanks...

    And since everybody sais Luffi is so much like Roger, he is discovering how to use it by himself also...

    About the ways to use it...
    Imo opinion is something u have to defend against while fighting, something that drains the opponent strenght faster, and allow u to maximaze the potencial of ur attacks

    That wasn't a thunder. That was the split between the clouds, caused by the raw strenght of their clash. It's no different than Zoro being able to attack from a distance or make a hole in the wall.

    Heh

    During the fight beetween Zoro and Kaku, Kaku said something about Zoro's "spiritual power"/"aura" or something else, I am not sure if it would be the haki.

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    Gol D. Roger wasn't the first strong guy ever. Next you'll be saying he was the first to find devil fruits ~_~

    On topic: I believe Haki is just a technique of a person's spirit. It wouldn't be used alongside attacks, though a person's spirit (always) is in the form of their own techniques. Example: Zoro's Asura is the manifestation of his powerful spirit and rage, but he can't use Haki (yet).

    Sorry readers: taking a break from my One Piece reviews. Though I love doing them, One Piece Reviews are actually not near the top of my to-do list. Perhaps one day I'll return and do them properly.

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    I think haki will have the same standart properties as in regular manga, although I dont expect characters to start shoting kamehameha's or rasengans. I think it will be used mostly to show how powerful a character is and to enhance the strength/speed of characters that can use it.

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    I see it more as a way to show a strong character. Though the SHs don't necessarily have strong spirit strength yet, at least Zoro and Luffy have that kind of baka strength.

    Maybe it's similar to "Gaijin Power"

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    People have asked how someone like Shanks could beat someone like Crocodile. Shanks is obviously stronger, but if a sword just goes through Crocodile, what is Shanks to do? I think with enough Haki (I think of it as willpower) behind it, he could cut Crocodile, just like him and WB split the sky.
    The Grain Pirates. Scourge of Spelt, Corsairs of Corn, Rogues of Rye, Buccaneers of Barley, the Freebooters of the Farmland.
    What reason is there to stop a man from sailing?

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    Haki is spirit or will power, in no way is it related to physical strength.
    Haki can knock out weaker pirates/marines because they don't have any spirit or will power.

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    Zoro will probally develop a haki of his own. or maybe he was first to harnest it. With the end of the tb arc i wouldn't be surprised if Zoro soon pulls out the knock out haki, as im sure mi hawk has the same sort of skill.

    Plus all haki seems to be for is to knock out the usless weaklings making life easier when it comes to escaping

    Re: Use(s) of haki

    I think this haki thing is not some sort of power or something. It's just a person's strong spirit affecting another. I'm really not hoping that they will get strong this way.
